Fund Description
Fund Objective
To seek to provide growth of capital while minimizing taxable gains and income to shareholders.

Investment Approach
We invest in growth-oriented companies believed to have above-average earnings predictability and stability and consider the following factors: a company's market position, product line, technological position, profit margins and prospects for sustainability and/or increased earnings; the quality of management; the short and long-term outlook for the industry; and changes in economic and political conditions. The manager attempts to achieve high after-tax returns by balancing investment and tax considerations.

Returns and Expenses

Data quoted is past performance and current performance may be lower or higher. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Performance at NAV does not include the effect of sales charges. Class A shares, including sales charges, reflects the maximum applicable front-end sales load.

Risk Factors: As with any mutual fund, the value of the Fund's shares will change, and you could lose money on your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. These and other risks are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. Not all funds or fund classes may be offered at all broker/ dealers.

Pricing: All prices and year-to-date returns are based on closing quotes unless noted, as supplied to the NASDAQ by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Stylebox: The Morningstar Equity style box reveals a fund's investment strategy by displaying the fund's investment style and the market capitalization of the stocks owned.

Index Description: Russell 1000 Growth is an unmanaged index comprised of securities that represent the large cap sector of the stock market. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Performance results for some funds may include the effect of expense reduction arrangements. If those arrangements had not been in place, the performance results would have been lower.

Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement: Through July 31, 2015, to the extent that the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class Y shares exceeds the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class A shares, Ivy Funds Distributor, Inc. (IFDI), the Fund’s distributor, and/or Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC), the Fund’s transfer agent, have contractually agreed to reimburse sufficient 12b-1 and/or shareholder servicing fees to ensure that the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class Y shares do not exceed the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses of the Class A shares, as calculated at the end of each month. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated by IFDI, WISC or the Board of Trustees.

The Class Y shares of Waddell & Reed Advisors Tax-Managed Equity Fund were reorganized as the Class I shares of Ivy Tax-Managed Equity Fund on May 18, 2009. The performance shown for periods prior to this date is that of the Class Y shares of Waddell & Reed Advisors Tax-Managed Equity Fund. Performance has not been restated to reflect the estimated annual operating expenses of the Ivy Tax-Managed Equity Fund. If those expenses were reflected, performance shown would differ. Ivy Tax-Managed Equity Fund Class I shares are not subject to sales charges.

Morningstar Ratings: For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges), placing emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund and rated separately.) A fund's overall rating is derived from a weighted average of the 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the share classes specified; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
